Schooling is not the same as education education - it is sacred. Here it is commodified - twisted, manipulated, thrown away with every spit bubble lazily popping at your mouth, every glazed over look you give your teacher Crunch time - that's what this is. Doing calculus in history or history in calculus always behind or at best, a little ahead never fully aligned. Busy work, that's what this is. Rote memorization, routine application. Internalization of grey matter You see the letters, you know the words, but do you know what they mean? If you look to the details, they'll explain the way your stress drives your hands insane picking and scratching until all that remains is skin scarred, knuckles marred because you can't refrain. talk talk pillow talk revelations light statements that will be forgotten as soon as you crawl out of bed eyes half closed breathy words hmms and mmms morning breath life is simple the world only stretches so far as the edges of the bed
Hi! I love your post! I’m the one who drew those two little pugs with tea — unfortunately, you’ve got a version of the picture where someone chopped off my watermark! Would you please replace that version with the watermarked version? You can find the correct image here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/179790387/pug-friends-tea-and-sympathy-card?ref=shop_home_feat_2
Sure thing! Thanks!

Those of us who were serious about learning received the education. I remember my first day of college, I expected it to be different than high school; the only thing different was that no one was making me attend class, oh, and if you were disruptive you were gone… no questions, no reprieve.
Interesting take. I’m in high school, so that’s all I know, and I’m going to college next year; super excited to finally learn what I want to learn.
